* How about the credits? And it's not just the use of that absolute TearJerker of a song - 'Find Yourself' by Brad Paisley. Those lyrics are bad enough, but at around the same time they begin (when the Hilarious outtakes have ended), the screen just ''has'' to display the words 'Dedicated to Joe Ranft 1960-2005'. For those who don't know, Ranft was an actor and close friend of the Pixar crew, who died in a car accident. Made more sad by them showing clips, next to the dedication, of the Pixar characters he played: Heimlich (from 'A Bug's Life'), Lenny (from 'Toy Story 1 & 2') and Wheezy (from 'Toy Story 2'). Made even worse for anyone who watched Toy Story 3 and was wondering where Lenny and Wheezy were ... and it might be bad for anyone who hoped for a sequel to WesternAnimation/ABugsLife, as well. So ... heartwarming song, dedication to lost friend, clips of characters we may never see again ...

** Even worse, in WesternAnimation/Cars3 [[spoiler:McQueen actually watches the crash as it actually happened in an old, grainy 8mm newsreel. Even moreso, Doc looks like he's really in pain. To top it all off, we see a flashback of Doc's speech from the first movie with the same archival recordings from the late Paul Newman.]] Way to inject us with emotional insulin, Pixar.

** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aGwpw5dwVz0 The "Our Town" sequence.]] ''Especially'' the part where Luigi pushes up the sign that says 'We're still open'. It's the "[[WesternAnimation/ToyStory2 When She Loved Me]]" of ''Cars''. Even WebVideo/CinemaSins thought so; despite having a low opinion on the movie, Jeremy is compelled to remove a sin for the song no matter what else happens.

-->'''Lightning:''' How could a car like you quit at the top of your game?!\\
'''Doc:''' (shocked) You think I ''quit''? (shows Lightning an old newspaper)\\
'''Lightning:''' Right... your big wreck in '54...\\
'''Doc:''' They quit on ''me''. When I finally got put together, I went back expecting a big welcome. Know what they said? "You're history." Moved on to the next rookie standing in line... There was a lot left in me. I just never got a chance to show 'em. I keep that to remind me never to go back.

* The scene where [=McQueen=] ''goes back'' and pushes the wrecked King over the finish line, giving up his victory, but giving The King some final dignity.
